Headlining the Lounge Around Town event today is none other than Liverpudlian lo-fi rockers Hooton Tennis Club. They will be bringing their sound spectacular to what is set to be a fantastic event.
Owing their name to a fortune cookie, the band have had frequent mentions in NME, Mojo and DIY amongst many others. The band also enjoyed a stomping set at the legendary Glastonbury Festival earlier this year playing to a packed out William’s Green tent. Talking about their performance at Glastonbury, NME reckon, “This time next year they’ll be powering through songs from their debut album on the John Peel stage”.
This debut album they speak of, Highest Point In Cliff Town, is set for release on 28th August, so you can be sure to hear tracks from this and maybe even a few sneaky previews!
Citing the likes of Supergrass, The Beach Boys and The Black Lips as their influences, you can expect a truly rocking set from the four-piece. Mojo described them as, “Stuffed with American indie familiarities, but they support a distict British eccentricity that’ll undoubtedly launch them into the masses”.
This looks set to be a perfect end to what has been a truly perfect Fringe. Don’t miss out.
Hooton Tennis Club will ber performing at 8:45pm in the Woodland Bar tonight.
